Volunteers Needed to Serve Shelter Meals

Written by Shomrei Torah Webmaster. Posted in News

The Shelter LogoThe Shelter’s new facility, located at 2650 Municipal Way, is open and has a fully furnished kitchen, food serving area, and dining room. Every organization that has provided prepared meals in the past, will no longer be able to do so. Instead we are being asked to volunteer our services during their usually scheduled meal. Shomrei Torah and the Shomrei Torah Sisterhood have committed to performing this mitzvah on the fourth Sunday of the month.
